Clinical Rotations & Pathways

The Foundation/Distribution concept also applies to the Clinical Rotations. To ensure broad preparation, each  student is required to complete the same set of 12 Clinical Rotations. In addition, students must select one of 6 Clinical Pathways, comprised of 7 additional rotations. This allows students to tailor a component of their clinical training to meet their interests and professional goals.
